Abstract [en]


The ISAAC rocket experiment is part of the

REXUS–15 payload. It has two free-falling units performing

infrared spectroscopy between them. One of the free-falling units

will actively track the other in the sky so as to enable continuous

measurements. In this thesis report, the design of this tracking

solution is described. The general concept of the tracking process

is outlined, upon which the conceptuals as well as the hardware,

software and firmware of each subsystem are explained. Tests of

respective subsystems are conducted and conclusions are drawn

pertaining to the accuracy and suitability of each subsystem for

the tracking system.
